“Bayeux Weekend”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Very friendly and helpful host. Good, clean accommodation in central location.
Ideal as a base to see Normandy whilst within short walk of Bayeux' attractions and restaurants. Secure off road parking available.

This place is a "work in progress". We stayed here for five nights, and our mood varied between "very comfortable" and "camping out". Our double room on the top floor was quite large - a good-sized armoire, enough floor space and a large bathroom. (A tight winding staircase up two flights; no elevator.) During our first night a street lamp illuminated our room very brightly; we requested (and they installed) a set of drapes that solved the problem. This is just a quirky place. The door lock uses a skeleton key that is difficult to operate. Parking your car requires opening a tall gate (that is just wide enough for a car, not a big car), stationing one person to stop traffic on the narrow street, and backing the car into a courtyard big enough for two cars.
The hostess, Miriam, is an enthusiastic, helpful person, ready to provide local lore, touring and dining advice, and directions. She and her daughter and two sons want to make your visit enjoyable.
The Villa is very conveniently located: near the Tapestry, the Cathedral, and the main shopping and dining area - all within easy walking distance. Bayeux was not
damaged during WWII, so it retains an almost medieval character. It has a lot of narrow streets that are one-way or should be.
Villa Aggarthi has some rough edges, but its location, price and the spirited hostess, Miriam, make it worth the consideration of the less-tender traveller.
Note: Payment in full in euros is required upon check-in.

Absolutely stupid !!!! Overpriced !!! Cement mixer in garden !!! Faulty towers !!!
This was a romantic break which turned out to be hilarious very expensive for what you get stale coffee in a jar !! Dirty cups !!! Dried milk in jar which sledgehammer would have had difficulty dislodging !!! Breakfast crap French bread mouldy preserves !! Look warm pot coffee !!! Which was brought to our room as we lay in bed in three shifts first table delivered and awkwardly assembled by owners son !! Then two stages of breakfast bread etc second delivery up the very narrow staircase which incidentally my partner caught his jumper on way in (ruined) third trip pot coffee and hot chic both look warm !!! No beautiful hot creeps like some reviews said day two yippee !!! Pancakes yuck from local store not remotely fresh !!! Ceiling in room had strange piece plywood where from damp marks obviously hiding leaking roof with some strange stuff (apparently ornamental) hanging baskets and rat catcher !!! On the up note linen clean and lots hot water !!
Also car parking very tight and if more than one car residing can wait quite while for other residents to move to let you out alternative leave your keys !!! Seriously would not recommend in any way when there are so many beautiful place all around ps the crazy lady took great time to show us the view of garden across road as they had a beautiful cherry tree which had been removed Why ? Still not sure ? Basically construction site and not very tidy one when finished guess !! Would be quite pleasant !!!

Room Tip: Don't bother !!!

My wife and I really enjoyed this B&B with its rustic gardens and courtyard . We came by train and the B&B is very conveniently located to the train station , and really everything else in town. Our room was quaint and clean, providing everything we needed for a good night's sleep.The breakfast was very good. We enjoyed the owner's dogs and looked forward to seeing them upon our return from sightseeing . Miriam was a wonderful host to us. We would like to return someday to Villa Aggarthi.

we stayed at Villa Aggarthi as a party of 4 - my parents visting from Australia and my 5 year old son
we shared a small upstairs apartment with a double bedroom and living room with two single beds doubling as a sitting area and bathroom off the double room. The room was basic but adequate for our 3 night stay. Yes there are dogs and cats and rabbits in the garden, but we did not mind, you are staying in someone elses home! If you dont like animals then stay in a hotel. I chose this as there was a garden and enclosed courtyard so I could let me 5 yr old run about without having to worry about roads. The courtyard was pleasant and we sat out in the evening. Breakfast was fab - wonderful crepes and rhubarb jam. good coffee and yoghurt, & fruit.
i chose this due to the comments of the hostess Miriam. Miriam mapped out great places to visit in Normandy as we were going to book a bus tour to maximise our time. We did not need to do the tour and saved quite a lot of money by going to the museums and beaches ourselves. the Museums are fantastic and give you plenty of information. We parked on the street outside the bnb which was free and convenient. the only downside is the that guest kitchen is not functional - i had planned to be able to prepare meals for the family but it was not suitable. we just used the fridge for our picnic lunch and ate out in the evenings at local restaurants. Walking distance to the station and very convenient to central Bayeaux.

We stayed over the D day period in 2010, but have just remembered how bad this place was. The highlights included being asked for more money than was agreed via email, yapping dogs, overgrown garden, filthy kitchen that you wouldn't want to use, and a moody hostess. We stayed for 4 nights and each night 1 or 2 weary travelers were told their booking wasn't confirmed as they hadn't replied to an email, even if they had a confirmation from a booking website.
Stay away, we wish we did!
